Leaflet/Foldout A3 Poster, Social Media Assets, Tote Bag


For centuries, censorship has been used by those in power as a tool to control and silence. It has forever gone hand in hand with the struggle for freedom of speech and expression. Today, the internet and social media offer new possibilities, renewing the need to force censorship into the spotlight. Through 50/50, Everpress brings together 50 artists from around the world to discuss one topic through their artwork, expressed through the medium of T-shirts.

Client: British Library
Book Design
Softcover, 192pp
220 × 280mm


‘Peter Whitfield reveals some of the ways in which the structure of the universe has been conceived, explained and depicted. With examples ranging from the Stone Age to the Space Age ancient observatories, the angelic visions of Dante, images from the Copernican revolution, the rationalized heavens of Isaac Newton, and modern deep space technology he offers a challenging exploration of the tension between rigorous scientific knowledge and the continuing search for cause, certainty and harmony in the universe.’
